Blackdog Posted April 19, 2008 Report Share Posted April 19, 2008 I'm posting this one here too (it's already in the finishing section) hoping to reach a wider audience... Hello, I'm in the middle of my first paint job (build number 2), spraying nitro from rattle cans. And I have to say that I'm liking the results so far. For my first build (all-mahogany carved body) I rubbed-on 50% thinned Plastic-Coating, without any pore filling for an oil-like effect. I'm now considering refinishing this one to something more protective and durable, like commercial all-mahogany electrics usually sport. Iwill be sanding the current finish off, but I can't do anything with what's inside the pores. So, questions for the more experienced finishers here: - Will a pore-filler like Rustin's work at all with some plastic-coating in the pores ?? - Suppose I don't fill the pores at all, will nitro still adhere well to the sanded wood AND the pores with some of the original finish still inside ?? Thanks for the help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
